6:13pm
jose and gilroy are already showing hourly levels of particulate matter that are well above healthy levels and officials expect those levels to rise tonight. so a "spare the air" alert has been issued for today and tomorrow. >> we get a lot of complaints around this time of year. people say, you know, of course you always call on the holidays. this is terrible! but the reality is, that's when we know people burn. >> reporter: the cold weather forces the particulate matter close to the ground and the lack of wind keeps it there. with the weather service also issuing a frost advisory for tonight, some are already taking precautions. some residents are covering up their plants. >> but i did hear about it's going to get pretty col tonight. >> reporter: but one thing residents cannot legally do to keep warm is light a wood- burning fire. lou ann dewitt also knows that. what do you do when it gets that cold? >> i stay home, turn on the fireplace and i can turn it on because it's gas. >> reporter: so you're not worried about "spare the air"? >> no, i don't have to. we changed that a long time ago.

6:26pm
from washington as the hous representatives has its sayn the senate bill that would >> your realtime captioner: linda marie macdonald. now at 6:30, breaking news from washington as the house of representatives has its say on the tax bill that would hike taxes on most americans and delay spending cuts. you're looking at live video of the debate leading up to the vote. if they amend the bill, the senate leadership has already said they won't consider it. the vote is expected to happen in a few hours. cbs reporter danielle nottingham is in washington where the house is debating the bill. >> reporter: the senate bill met opposition from house republicans for most of the day but after house republicans could not find enough support to amend that bill with more spending cuts, house leadership decided to take it fora vote tonight. how gop members left closed- door meetings with no agreement to pass the senate's "fiscal cliff" bill.
6:27pm
the sticking point for many republicans, the senate version does not cut enough spending >> what we're really doing is raising taxes to give the president more money to spend. we think that's a bad idea. >> reporter: republican majority leader eric cantor told reporters he did not support the bill in its current form. do you personally oppose the bill? >> i do not support the bill. >> reporter: the senate agreement postpones harsh across-the-board spending cuts for a few months. it also makes bush-era tax cuts permanent for individuals making under $400,000 a year and families making under $450,000 a year. the white house sent vice president joe biden here to capitol hill to try to broker a deal with the house just like he did in the senate. house democrats are welcoming his help. >> vice president biden has worked very hard to come to a compromise. by definition, a compromise has elements in it that each party does not like. >> i think that we've mad i
6:28pm
think that we've made gigantic progress. i hope that we can have a bipartisan agreement as we go forward. >> reporter: even though the country went over the "fiscal cliff" at midnight monday officially, the senate version of the bill makes all tax cut extensions retroactive to the beginning of the year. and right now house members are debating the rules of voting and after that an hour-long debate will precede the house vote. if they pass this, this goes to president obama for his signature. >> danielle, i have to ask you, of course, the critical thing is whether or not the house amends the bill. so there an indication that the house republicans have basically conceded, waved a white flag and said we are going to have to pass it as it so we didn't go off the cliff or is there a suggestion that they will insist on spending cuts? >> reporter: the republicans tried to get the amended bill.
6:29pm
they won't get it tonight. house speaker john boehner gave them two options, amend the bill with more spending cuts or vote on it as is. they went around today to see if they had the 218 votes they would need to amend it with more spending cuts. it appears they did not find enough support to do that. so that's why they are bringing it to a vote -- that's why they're bringing it to a vote as it is now. >> that's critical. it sounds like it's all over but the voting. >> reporter: it's all about the voting and tonight, i suspect there will be a lot of house republicans that won't be in support of this. house minority leader nancy pelosi, she says that house democrats are behind this. so they don't need all the republicans to agree on this. but again, when this is all over, they will be upset. and we may see another showdown like this coming up. they have to decide what to do with those automatic spending cuts if this bill passes. that's only delayed for two months and we have to deal with the debt limit again. this is far from over. there will be a lot of unhappy
6:30pm
people tonight and in the future. >> even after this, the next cliff looms. danielle, thank you. if americans weren't frustrated with washington already, this most recent debate has pushed many over the edge. cbs 5 reporter john ramos has more. reporter: your view from the "fiscal cliff" depends on where you are in the bay area. lafayette is an affluent east bay town where million-dollar homes are common. here the talk is all about higher taxes. >> they should have incorporated the legislation so that, you know, we don't have to pay more taxes, the average tax paying citizen. >> reporter: but over in san pablo, the houses aren't as fancy and the concern is cuts to programs for low income people. >> i think it's kind of good that they're taking a little bit more from the wealthy than the poor. that helps out a lot. >> reporter: and while there may be disagreement about how to solve the nation's money problems, the contempt for congress is nearly unanimous. >> they are sitting back drinking their wine while we suffer.
6:31pm
>> i think it's congress. i think it's us reelecting people that are going to continue to vote no taxes will vote you know keep these programs. >> there is no way i can run my business how we run this country. >> reporter: jennifer owns the children's store in lafayette. she is not thrilled with the "fiscal cliff" process but doesn't blame the politicians for it. >> a lot of congress' motivation is by the fact that they are going to do something and then they have to turn to their constituents and say this is what i did and, yes, then we would be throwing a fit. >> reporter: no matter what evolves from the process, this businesswoman and mother knows what should be done. >> we have to share the responsibility. and i think that we all need a good behavioral change. we all need a time-out. [ laughter ] >> we all are throwing a fit. we all need a time-out. >> reporter: in the east bay, john ramos, cbs 5. 'tis the season for resolutions a lot having to do
6:32pm
with physical fitness but house fiscal fitness? cbs 5 consumerwatch reporter julie watts has some important tips. reporter: as you plunk down a couple of bucks for that cup of coffee -- >> probably two or three times a day >> reporter: --or shell out a little more lunch. >> typically around 8 bucks. >> reporter: --ask yourself, do you make more than $90 an hour? that's what you need to earn to reasonably afford eating out five days a week. >> it's not worth the hassle for me to prepare lunch. if it costs me another $1,000 at the end of the year it's worth it. >> reporter: tip number one, according to personal finance experts, you could save around $1,000 a year if you brew your own coffee or brown bag it. >> you think about the taxes that you have to pay and your regular just day-to-day living expenses like your pg&e bill and your cell phone bill and all of that the $90 an hour really gets eaten away quickly. >> reporter: which brings us to tip 2. save, save, save. according to the united states federal reserve, americans on average only save 3.6% of their income. what we should be saving upwards of 10%.
6:33pm
and if you are counting on social security, plan on socking away 12 times your current income too. because getting old can get expensive. >> i have seen clients pay upwards of $13,000 a month for round the clock care in their homes. it's very expensive. >> reporter: and then there's housing. bringing us to tip number 3. you shouldn't spend more than 25 percent of your income on where you live. a tall order here in the bay area. but keeping this rule of thumb in mind might help you stash some cash into your 401(k) or ira. >> cheers! >> reporter: this couple rents two bedrooms of their home to offset their mortgage and help them reach their financial goals. >> stay in the house and retire here and burn that mortgage paper. >> reporter: and they talk money every saturday in an effort to track their progress. >> we're acutely aware of what's in our accounts and when we decide to use credit.
6:34pm
>> reporter: a small price to pay for peace of mind and the more prosperous future. in campbell, julie watts, cbs 5. the year is not already a day old and we have a baby controversy. why two bay area hospitals are bickering over a bay area birthday. [ drumming ] >> we don't want to disturb our neighbors. >> until now, they were some downbeat drummers. how these bay area musicians found a new place to play. [ laughter ] [ girl ] wow, you guys have it easy. i wish i had u-verse when i was your age. in my day, we didn't have these fancy wireless receivers. blah blah blah. if i had a sleepover, i couldn't just move the tv into the playroom.
6:35pm
no. we had to watch movies in the den because that's where the tv outlet was. and if dad was snoring on the couch, we muscled through it. is she for real? your generation has it made. [ male announcer ] the wireless receiver only from at&t u-verse. get u-verse tv for $29 a month for six months. rethink possible.
6:36pm
debate over its proposed na. the alisal union school dist construction of an elementary school in salinas hasn't finished and there's already a debate over its proposed name. the school district voted to name the school after tibersio vazquez. critics say he terrorized
6:37pm
californians in the 19th century and it glorifies violence but some mexican- americans say vazquez was defending his land, culture and community from white settlers. an impressive bay area music group is looking for a new home. jennifer mistrot says their instruments may be loud, but their sounds are worth it. [ drumming ] >> reporter: they're big! they're loud! and they're homeless. >> very depressing, discouraging. >> reporter: emeryville taiko formed on new year's day over a decade ago. and the group has been looking for a permanent place to play their drums ever since. >> we don't want to disturb our neighbors. it's fun to play and watch but if you have to listen to this it's not so much fun and i totally understand that. >> reporter: taiko drumming is a centuries old watch and learn process. it's loud. the music is not written down. drummers of all ages and
6:38pm
ability levels learn to play by ear. >> they're pretty inspiring and fun. and the thing about them is this is really something i like to do. >> reporter: music and meals have been shared in loaned spaces all over the east bay. but without a permanent home -- >> what do you think? >> reporter: -- the group has lost a lot of memories. emeryville taiko may soon be moving again. complaints from neighbors in the past have limited practice, some sketchy areas of town. their current space is not available much longer. but today is for ringing in the new year. and susan horne is posting a one out of sorts. >> all the groups, theatrical, singing groups, everybody needs a safe place to practice their art. those places are slowly disappearing and it makes me
6:39pm
very sad. >> thank you, everybody, for coming to our 2013... [ indiscernible ] [ drumming ] >> reporter: in oakland, jennifer mistrot, cbs 5. from the cbs 5 weather center, good evening, everybody. it's live, it's high-def doppler radar. and if we had any kind of precipitation, it would be detecting it. but the truth of the matter, clear skies and below freezing temperatures. we'll pinpoint the coldest locations coming up but first, vern glenn. >> that's right. hey, ahead you got a bay area pac-12 team in the rose bowl, it's a game changer. it's mega, and it was stanford full of emotion front and center. ,,,,,,,,,,

how about 29 degrees in santa rosa. 29 in livermore. 34 degrees in throughout alviso, alum rock and the almaden valley. 30s and 50s in the central bay. freezing in san mateo. santa rosa went from 58 going down to 29 overnight. currently in san jose it's in the 40s. 47 morgan hill. the coldest numbers at this hour happen to be in the north and east of the bay where temperatures have already dipped down to 43 and 44 from pleasanton through livermore, central bay sporting numbers in the 40s and a few low 50s. the winds are pretty much non- existent. we are clearing out after a few clouds in the area today. overnight tonight you will need the extra blanket. we have our second winter "spare the air" day in effect for tomorrow. that's so far this season. if you want to compare it to last year, we had 11 "spare the
6:47pm
air" days up to this point. no rain until january 10th. i'm going out on a limb but this is how i see it. it's a dry weather pattern setting up. this is an area of low pressure that looks ominous but notice how it's beginning to shred at the seams banking up against a huge ridge of high pressure so we'll have partly cloudy skies by thursday and friday. but overall no rain. as far as our precipitation of normal stats are concerned, we are doing really well. we are pretty hefty on totals, 134% of normal in santa rosa. last year we were at 31% of normal. 140 in oakland and in san jose. your sierra forecast, we have no snow in the forecast, all the way to january 10 but some ice several conditions so make sure if you are heading to the mountains that you always carry the chance along. really advisable this time of the year. tomorrow's temperatures with the abundance of sunshine into the 50s across the board, very similar to today. still averaging anywhere between 3 and 7 degrees below
6:48pm
normal for this time of the year. count on only 49 degrees in concord and in clayton. this is your extended forecast. again, what do you notice? take a good look, brian, elizabeth, even vern? what do you notice? >> no, sir 60s yet. >> no rain! >> no 60s yet. >> you're both right. we have absolutely no rain in the offing there and no 60s. temperatures in the 50s. that's your pinpoint forecast. vern glenn is next with sports.

welcome back to cbs 5. this is the house chamber in washington, d.c. as the house prepares to vote on the critical emergency legislation to prevent widespread tax increases and emergency spending cuts. what's at issue is whether or not the house will amend that emergency legislation. the senate said if the house amends it they will not consider it. indications are the house is just going to go ahead and vote on the senate bill. it will in all likelihood pass and that vote will be coming within about 90 minutes. when they do, we'll let you know. we have our own battles here in the sports department and vern has the latest. >> i guess those guys didn't see the game in pasadena.
6:52pm
>> probably not. >> they're busy. you ask any credible football player, what's the holy grail of the pac-12? and they will tell you flat out, it's the rose bowl. let's face it, it's their super bowl. so you can imagine how fired up stanford was for this one against wisconsin. look at that sea of humanity. >> whoo! stanford looking to win the first rose bowl since 1972 and they struck early and often on the first series. kelsey young, it's a touchdown! cardinal on top 7-0. they scored or not first two possessions. kevin hogan up top. zach comes down with it. a 43-yard play. and that set up the owe financessive mvp. stephan taylor in from three yards out, the offensive mvp. he turned out 88 yards. the badgers didn't go away. the lead is cut in half.
6:53pm
>> a score, three-point game midway. stanford made a big play to ice it. the effort is tipped into the hands and that does it. the 40-year drought is over! they win 20-14. and they get it done with no huge superstar on the team. >> i think it serves as motivation for us throughout the year. couple of years ago we lost toby gear heart and coach harbaugh. i think it's a testament to the program how we train and prepare each week and every season. >> how tough are they at the outback bowl? there's your answer. south carolina's player forced a fumble on vincent smith of michigan. but here's the game, thompson to ellington 11 seconds left in
6:54pm
the game for the win. 33-28 the final. capital bowl, georgia in white. quarterback aaron murray one of his five touchdown passes, this one to break a 31-31 toy with nebraska. murray, marshall and the dawgs beat the huskers 45-31. on to the gater bowl. the long wait is over for northwestern. quarterback trevor simeon on the keeper against mississippi state. northwestern wins the bowl game for the first time in 63 years. they win it 34-20. ha ha ha! he can dance. 49ers after watching david acres make only 69% of his field goals, coach jim harbaugh said enough is enough. the team signed kicker billy con difficult. if that name sounds familiar, he is the one that missed the field goal that would have vaulted the ravens into the super bowl last year. the patriots moved on. harbaugh was keeping david akers on the roster and plans
6:55pm
to have two players compete to be the team as kicker in the play-offs. nba d-league action. the santa cruz warriors. yeah. in white, hosting sioux falls. jeremy tyler getting some work in. that got everybody's attention. and then as kent missed, tyler has his back on the follow. tyler had a strong game, 18 points, two assists. great ball moving here. inside to mccail, warriors 109- 93. singing the national anthe is tough. every now and then are problems. i have done it twice. like with gina renee today in santa cruz. >> oer the ramparts we watched
6:56pm
at the twilight's last gleaming... hmmmm... ♪ [ pause ] >> oh. >> help me out. >> that's the loneliest feeling. >> so the crowd is encouraged to help her out. then the referee comes over and kind of mouths the words to her to kind of get her going... and then she ended up finishing up strong. >> give her a foul. >> it's a tough one. >> it is. >> gina, she had some pipes. >> yes. >> just one of those things where you just freeze. you just forget a line and then you're done. >> standing in that big audience i'm sure she was nervous. >> probably because the temperatures are so cold. >> that's it. >> that's the factor. >> blame it on the weather. >> always. the news is always on cbssf.com. see you at 10:00 on the cw. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
